Southwestern Style Homes, Plenty of Golf and an Abundance of Amenities Draw Retirees to Arizona's Mountainbrook Village in Southern Arizona

Mountainbrook Village is a quiet, well-maintained 55+ community situated at the base of the Superstition Mountains in the Sonoran Desert thirty miles to the east of Phoenix, Arizona.   Residents here have the choice of single family homes or "casitas" (duplexes), all of which are in a traditional Southwestern, Mission architectural style of sandstone-colored stucco exteriors and tile roofs.  

 

 

This is an established development with 1,660 homes clustered into neighborhoods, and amenities are fairly extensive.   Mountainbrook is on the outskirts of the Phoenix/Scottsdale/Mesa metropolitan area, so traffic is minimal (and there are golf cart lanes on the major streets).    While the community is quiet, the Mountainbrook lifestyle is an active one.

All residences are single story and come with at least a two car garage. More expensive homes have extended garages.   The community was primarily built in the 1990s, and homes have from 1,400 sq. ft. to nearly 2,500 sq. ft.  Views of the mountains or the golf course are fairly standard, and residences have a patio (or two), tall windows, arched doorways and tile floors.   Landscaping consists of decorative rock, cactus, oleanders and other drought-tolerant shrubs and trees.   

 

The Fairway Vistas Association takes care of watering the plants and painting homes' exteriors.  Surrounding neighborhoods consist primarily of single family homes in the same economic bracket.  There are also houses for lease.  Home prices generally start in the low-$200,000s.   Please check with a Realtor to verify these prices as they may change.

   A full time activities director is on staff, so activities are always available. Daily, scheduled events and classes include aerobics, clogging, bridge, darts, pickelball, pottery, book discussions, poker, painting and political discussions.   A theater group, holiday events, dinner clubs, concerts, pancake breakfasts, parties and potlucks, as well as all kinds of excursions, from bingo bus trips to art gallery outings to trips to Disneyland, Mexico and the Greek Isles ensure that no one is ever bored.   A monthly newsletter keeps Mountainbrook residents in the loop, and a newcomers' group helps new residents feel welcome.

Residents also enjoy two heated swimming pools, a hot tub, tennis courts, a well-stocked library, a billiards room, a computer center, a ceramic arts center, a fully-equipped exercise facility and much more

For the outdoor inclined, an 18-hole, public championship golf course winds its way through the community. Althouh it is not owned by the HOA, Mountainbrook residents receive discounts to play.  Four more courses are within a few miles. There are scheduled hikes into the surrounding hills and/or desert twice a week.

When it comes to professional sports, Phoenix is home to the Cardinals (football), Diamondbacks (baseball) and Coyotes (hockey). Museums, theater, dining and all that a major city has to offer are also just twenty minutes away.    

Nestled in the foothills of the rugged Superstition Mountains, Gold Canyon began as a cattle ranch in the 1800s and hosted Hollywood cowboys during the 1940s when numerous Westerns were filmed in the area. Canyon Lake has a marina and recreation sites, and it is a popular spot for swimming and boating. Gold Canyon does not have a hospital, but Banner Baywood Medical Center is about nine miles away in Mesa and is accredited.

 

 

The climate is hot and dry with abundant sunshine.  Summer daytime temperatures can easily top 100 degrees, and winter daytime temperatures are in the 60s and 70s. The area receives no snow and about 10 inches of rain per year.
